Growth to Maturity is Needed and Attainable

“He Himself gave some…for the perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ, until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” (Eph. 4:11-13)

The intercession offered at the incense altar is for the growth and maturity of the believers so that an army can be formed. The more we pray at the incense altar, the more we will realize that the need for maturity is desperate, and the greater will be the urgency to pray for the growth in life unto maturity.

Only when such an army is formed will God be able to move on earth for His purpose. Crystallization-Study of Numbers, week 14, V.B-V.B.2

O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me, And all things else recede. Make this poor self grow less and less, Be Thou my life and aim. Hymn 395, v. 1, 5

Los Angeles

The whole church in Los Angeles will meet together LD, October 20 at hall 2, starting at 10 am. Ask the Lord to o\pour out His grace and wisdom for all the preparations.

Raising up and Shepherding the Next Generation

“This charge I commit to you, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you might war the good warfare.” (1 Tim. 1:18)

The Lord surely loves and cares for our children and young people, and His good intention for them is that they would become the next generation in His move. Throughout history He has depended on the faithful labor of His saints to raise up the next generation, mainly their own children, for the continuation of His divine economy on the earth.

The lessons learned by the first generation [among Israel in the wilderness] surely became part of the heritage passed on to the second generation….This speaking was part of the raising up, or the building up, of the second generation….God was able to prepare from the second generation more than six hundred thousand men with a rich inheritance and strong background who were qualified to be formed into an army to fight with Him and for Him. (WL, LS of Numbers, chap. 52, sec. 1)

Lord, release the entire spiritual heritage, both enjoyment and suffering, of our older generation for the shepherding and raising up of our next generation.

Germany & Switzerland – Conference for Young Adults

This conference will be September 27 to 29 at the Gut Elim Blending Center, the largest event to date at this location. About 200 young adults—students and working—will meet and stay overnight here. The general subject is “The Growth in Life, the Experience of Life, and Living a Normal Christian Life.”

The main burden is to lead our young generation into the step-by-step process of having normal and proper dealings with the Lord to remove all obstacles and hindrances to our growth in the Lord’s life and our being perfected as members of His Body. May this conference truly lead our young adults into higher, richer, and deeper experiences and bring them to a higher level!

Central Europe

From September 28 to 29, there will be a blending conference in Bratislava, Slovakia for saints in Slovakia, Czechia, Hungary, Austria, Croatia, and Serbia, as well as any others who wish to join. Please pray for the strengthening and spread of the Lord’s testimony in this region. May the Lord bless this gathering for His further move in Central Europe and the whole earth.

United Kingdom

The UK’s departure from the European Union (Brexit) is scheduled for October 31. Plans for this have caused considerable turmoil in the government and among the people. May the Lord sovereignly rule over the Brexit situation for His interests and for the advancement of His move in Europe.
